    HOly crap! Went from 10 cents to over 2 grand!

    Its a little fishy that a bunch of the higher bids came from the same person though.......

    no it was just someone else slowly bidding, but not enough of someone's actual highest bid

    Ebay is block by the firewall here... Is this someone selling another "Xbox box"?

    I remember when the PS2 and XBox were released people were selling the carton the consoles came in and people were bidding hundreds of dollars.

    Nah, the guy is auctioning off his services - specifically, he'll go to your local best buy/circuit city/whatever, and camp out there, buy you an Xbox on release day and bring it to you.

    Last I checked, he was up to $2k

    Heh, what a scam. If you haven't had one on pre-order for the past few months you aren't getting one on release day.

    MS is short shipping the console to raise hype by making sure every outlet sells out on release day. And all those were covered under the pre-orders.

    Are people really so desperate to have the "newest" game platform first?
